Help with Dunwich Benevolent Asylum

I’m looking for any records/photos of a potential inmate held at the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum in 1903.

Laura Emerson Howling (Child) may have been sent to the asylum for reasons unknown. 

North Stradbroke Island Hitorical Musuem keeps records of the 20,000+ inmates held on the island. Unfortunately it seems these records have not yet been digitised. 

Here is a link to the archive: http://www.archivessearch.qld.gov.au/Search/AgencyDetails.aspx?AgencyId=861

And here is some information about the program:

https://www.stradbrokemuseum.com.au/dba

Is anyone here familiar with this facility and is there a project relating to this place?

Yes that’s the correct person. It makes her presence at a Queensland based asylum more intriguing.
It turns out it was his other wife: Scott-29508
